RELEASE: Virtual Earth has Major Upgrade


Virtual Earth just got and update along with Live Search Maps which went up including a new version of the 3D control.  Here’s a quick list of the major feature additions to VE:

  • Communities
  • Local Search Vertical
  • Details page
  • Multi-Point Directions
  • Landmark Hints
  • Geocoding
  • Imagery Processing and Rendering
  • Vector Data (roads and places)
  • Localized Tiles
  • 3DVIA
  • Weather

One of the cooler things is the real time weather that is displayed within the maps when viewing an area using the 3D Map rendering tool.
